Educational Philosophy: My philosophy as an instructor is to challenge my students to learn as much as they can and to enjoy that learning process. The atmosphere of my classroom is one of mutual respect rather than one of authority. I teach students, not subjects. In order for my students to learn effectively, communication with them is an utmost priority. Through communication, I will be able to “listen” to what they are saying and to discern their level of understanding. I must have strong written communication skills; engage them in a safe and open environment; and build a sense of community among them. And I will learn right along with them.
